Blue Fish House 2 in Sugar Land – They have the best sushi that I have had since living in Northern CA. My friend and I kept ordering and ordering-everything was so fresh. The ambiance was cool and calming. I will be back!
A Favorite and Reliable Place – Food is great and service is always great. I've been to this place a lot, and I haven't experienced any of the negative comments left by others. Nice atmosphere and solid dishes. They also don't frown at special requests, which is refreshing. The prices are good, and they are far lower than other sushi places in town. Excellent variety of sushi and specialty vegetarian dishes. Very pleasant dining experience each time, and I've been to Blue Fish more than 50 times.
Fabulous sushi & friendly service!! – This is by far one of the better Japanese restaurants in town. After reading many of the other reviews on some of the other Japanese restaurants people are to easily fooled by the word "japanese restaurant". They rate them high not knowing the difference of bad and then good. Blue Fish House has better food than most of the others in town. The sushi & sashimi are very fresh and has a good flavor with good consistency. The rolls are very creative, huge & tasty. Prices are very reasonable for the quality of the food.
All in all though, well worth trying and enjoying!
terrible sushi! – This restaurant serves low quality food. The owners are not Japanese, so don't expect good sushi. The miso soup was too salty, without scallions, and with very few tofu and seaweed pieces, and a bad fishy aftertaste. The shumai (shrimp dumplings) are bland with low quality frozen shrimp, the dough is too thick, and the dipping sauce is too vinegary and overpowering. The veggie dumplings are even worse-- thick dough wrapped around mostly cream cheese with a few veggies. Who ever heard of a dumpling stuffed with cream cheese? The sushi fish is not very fresh, dry on the edges, and low quality. They do not have anything special sushi fish, just salmon, tuna, etc (no fatty tuna or marlin or any other delicacy). The sushi fish was so terrible, you can get better sushi for less at Whole Foods. The california roll is also terrible, and not at all what is usually is. There is hardly any avocado in it, and the crabmeat is actually mostly cream cheese with a few chunks of crabmeat so it looks like a tuna salad. The menu did not mention cream cheese in the CA roll! This place gets 2 stars instead of 1 just because the food is edible and won't make you ill you, but it's so tasteless that I can't recommend it and I won't be going back.
Great little sushi bar! – Seems like there is an aweful lot of sushi bars in Houston that are more concerned with being trendy and not really about the food this is not the case at Blue Fish. The sushi is fresh and the rolls are different with a nice Thai twist. It's not a place where you can be in a hurry but really I don't think sushi is a thing for people with not a lot of time to eat. It's been my favorite spot for years and I will continue to return. As for the service yes there are times when it's a little slow but if you are not an uptight american and relax a little then it will be all fine. I would recommend that everyone go. They have a wonderful cooked menu and a huge vegetarian selection which can be hard to find at a sushi restaurant.
Decent Food, Poor Service – Food was decent for a sushi restaurant, although there are much better (and slightly less expensive) places in Houston. The atmosphere was casual and almost coffee shop like as it is one large room with a small sushi bar in the back.
The downfall is the service. We had to take our water glasses up to the service station for refills. Once our check arrived, we waited 30 minutes before walking our credit card up to the service station and asking to have the bill paid. Although they were busy, it is not that large of a restaurant, so I find it hard to understand how their service can be so poor.
Horrible – Tonight was a first for me. I have never in my adult life given a $0 tip but that is exactly what I did tonight. Typically, if service is decent and I see effort by the staff I tip at least 20%. I will not bore you with the details but lets just say I felt like I had to wait on myself(going back and forth to the wait station).
This place came hightly recommended but between awful service and mediocre sushi I do not see how they have such a solid crowd.
Cute, fresh and affordable – This is by far the best sushi place I have been to in Houston. I have never had a bad meal there. The Deep Fried Madness Roll is to die for and they have the best salad dressing. It's a very cute, clean restaurant but nothing fancy.
good sushi but service is terrible – I really like the sushi here which is why I've gone back so many times but I've got to say that the lunch service keeps getting worse each time. Either they do not hire enough staff or their wait staff is just incompetent. Sometimes they don't check back with you to see what you need or you have to ask for things multiple times before you finally get what you need. On our last trip there, we arrived at 11:30 and the restaurant was almost empty yet it took over 45 minutes to get our very basic sushi order. We had to ask the waitress and manager several times. they barely apologized and said they would give us a discount on our bill. Their big discount ended up being about $1.50 - next time don't bother. I think its time to find another lunch time sushi spot - we've given Bluefish too many tries to get it right.
Good stuff. – I am by no means a sushi connoisseur, but this place is great. I had sushi before coming here, but was never a big fan. I'd go if other people made plans for it. Blue Fish stood out in taste and quality and made me want to go back for more, which I have. Several times.
